Poultry specialist Wayne Farms awarded its top carriers at an event Sept. 9-10.
Awards recognized superior logistics and transportation services and were given to four companies and three individuals. In addition, Wayne Farms recognized 10 “Top On-Time” carriers for outstanding on-time delivery performance, hitting the company goal of 97% OTD for the year.
“Last year was a year of change,” says Craig Watkins, Wayne Farms’ director of logistics, noting the introduction of new products, new customers and an upgrade of navigation technology featuring GPS integration and real-time, end-to-end product tracking and
Seamless inventory tracking, management and delivery are the core requirements of logistics
partners, he adds. “Our customer’s business only works if we’re on time, every time. Load handling, food and transportation safety, on-time delivery and load acceptance—every
element is critical. We needed partners who could embrace new technology and not only hit key
performance indicators but be flexible and respond to changing requirements.”
